Axl Rose has amassed quite a few detractors over the years based on his late arrivals to the stage – or in the instance of a 2002 show in Philadelphia, not showing up at all. On that fateful night in 2002, when the crowd found out Guns N’ Roses wouldn’t be taking the stage, a riot erupted, resulting in several fans being sent to the hospital.
Ten years later, Axl Rose was back in Philadelphia last night (Feb. 27) playing at the Electric Factory during GN’R’s intimate club run. During the show, Axl took some time to comment on the 2002 event, saying that the facts were misconstrued.
Check out below what Axl said and earned an applause.
And to remind, Guns N’ Roses will return to Europe with first summer days. Closest to Croatia they will appear on June 22nd at Masters Of Metal in Milan, Italy and even closer on June 29th at See-Rock Festival in Graz, Austria where they will share the stage with Ian Astbury and his The Cult!
